Leo Buscaglia



"Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation.
We don't love to be loved; we love to love."

When Leo Buscaglia died in 1998, I felt sad. Sad because I love books and his death means no more books written by him to read.  Felice Leonardo Buscaglia is an Italian author and a motivational speaker. He was born March 31, 1924 and died of heart attack on June 12, 1998.

Our family received a hardcover copy of Bus 9 to Paradise as a gift from Sr Christella in 1988. I have read the book a dozen of time. I read the book when I need to be motivated, inspired and enlightened.  I was 12 years old back then.

The book is at my parents' house. I must hunt for an e-book version of all his books. I think he authored 13 books and I was lucky to read 3 of them -- "Bus 9 to Paradise: A Loving Voyage", "The Fall of Freddie the Leaf: A Story of Life for All Ages" and "Living, Loving and Learning"
